As the orchestra played the Ninth Symphony’s final, soothing D-flat major chord, a tonality that all but evaporates into a mist of silence, one could hear a proverbial pin drop inside the Schermerhorn...His interpretation of Mahler’s last completed symphony (and de facto final testament) was spectacular from beginning to unforgettable experience

Giancarlo Guerrero, principal guest conductor for the orchestra’s Miami residency, is an expert accompanist. He deftly blended and balanced Rodrigo’s piquant wind and string writing without overpowering his soloist. Rhythms were crisp and snappy, the unison violins sounded lustrous and brash trumpet interjections in the finale perked up the ears…Guerrero managed to bring out the poetry amid Respighi’s wide-screen panorama of orchestral colors.
